Well that foot has been swallowed: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-second-amendment-people-could-do-something-about-clinton-judge-choices/

 

I don't take this as a call to violence. But it was a pretty stupid thing to say even by his standards. Of course the reaction, particularly the pro-Hillary media has been over the top. MSNBC started off their election coverage last night be saying, and I quote "Donald Trump Calls for Assassination of Hillary Clinton".

 

Yeah, much like the whole "Russia, please hack Hillary" thing, this was pretty clearly a not-particularly-coherent attempt at a joke.  I wouldn't call the coverage particularly biased, though-- you'd see over-the-top headlines had any candidate said something like this.  This is what the media does-- spot a "gaffe" and broadcast it far and wide.  It's the easiest kind of campaign reporting to do, and it draws eyeballs far better than policy analysis or poll results.

 

(It probably feels like bias against Trump because he says idiotic stuff like this so regularly.  Shockingly, when you nominate a candidate who thinks that observing common standards of decency in public discourse is a bad thing, you're going to get a candidate who says a lot of poorly considered stuff.)

I actually love to drive.  I've driven my RV across the country, I'd rather drive for 7 hours to get to Vegas than make the hour and a half flight.  Unfortunately 90% of my driving is spent sitting in traffic trying to get to or away from work.  Automated freeway driving would be more efficient, vastly cut down on accidents, and free me up to do other stuff.  I fail to see how that is giving up independence.  I am telling the car where to go.   :blink:

I expect Mr. Trump will get a talking to from the Secret Service today. Something along the lines of "Please don't do that again"

No it is bias against Trump. In one week Hilzilla lied about what Comey said about her, said she "short circuited", had to be virtually carried up a short flight of stairs, had the Orlando's terrorist's father seated right behind her while she commemorated the victims, just had e-mails released detailing how she used the State Department to pay off Clinton Foundation donors, and probably half a dozen other things I'm forgetting. Not to mention she explicitly hoped for Obola's assassination in 2008, which the media never mentions. And yet it's all "Trump, Trump, Trump"

Oh and lets not forget. She (and the DNC) accused the Russians of hacking in and releasing their e-mails that exposed them trying to torpedo Sander's Primary Bid. But it was really Seth Conrad smith, a DNC staffer who did it. And Hillary ordered his murder: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/08/wow-breaking-video-julian-assange-suggests-seth-rich-wikileaks-dnc-source-shot-dead-dc/

Nvm, the word is out that there's a Charizard Pokemon at the top of the tower. Just a really, really determined guy, that's all. Nothing to see here. Move along, folks.

Um...because a lunatic is just that: a lunatic. Trump, however, is running for president...any lunatic actually deliberately making threats is obviously worse in regards to their personal character than in Trump's off-the-cuff remark (not that he really seems to make any other type of remark...), but until they're running for president, who cares? The only people that should be concerned are the police and the Secret Service (unless they're deliberately ignoring said lunatic for political reasons, in which case it then becomes our concern).

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Anyone who actually loves the 2nd Amendment will tell you shooting a President (or anyone else) is the WORST thing you can do. Not only because normal folks don't f-----g kill people but using a firearm will only fuel more gun control.

 

As I posted earlier, the thought of Hillary Clinton picking judges terrifies me. She will pick people who do not believe in individual rights or liberties. They make noises collective rights and how the Constitution is a "living" document (it is not) but what they are all about is the empowerment of the State over the people. The ruling philosophy of Justices Ginsburg, Bryer, Kagan, and Sotomayor (only most of the time in her case) is that the power of the Government is absolute. If that doesn't frighten you, it should. 

 

But even if Hillary wins and puts another of their ilk on the Court in Scalia's seat it is extremely unlikely Heller will be revisited before at least one new Justice is appointed. And we will have the opportunity to neuter a Clinton administration in 2018 and dispose of it in 2020. And if worse does come to worst and there is a prohibition and confiscation of firearms then there will be armed resistance. It is the final measure against tyranny. Just as the Founders designed.

Now, he’s announcing that Hillary Clinton and her State Department was actively arming Islamic jihadists, which includes the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.

 

The Reagan administration officials hoped to secure the release of several U.S. hostages, and then take proceeds from the arms sales to Iran, to fund the Contras in Nicaragua.

 

Sounds familiar?

 

In Obama’s second term, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton authorized the shipment of American-made arms to Qatar, a country beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood, and friendly to the Libyan rebels, in an effort to topple the Libyan/Gaddafi government, and then ship those arms to Syria in order to fund Al Qaeda, and topple Assad in Syria.

 

Clinton took the lead role in organizing the so-called “Friends of Syria” (aka Al Qaeda/ISIS) to back the CIA-led insurgency for regime change in Syria.

 

Under oath Hillary Clinton denied she knew about the weapons shipments during public testimony in early 2013 after the Benghazi terrorist attack.

 

In an interview with Democracy Now, Wikileaks’ Julian Assange is now stating that 1,700 emails contained in the Clinton cache directly connect Hillary to Libya to Syria, and directly to Al Qaeda and ISIS.

Oby I thought we were in agreement on this one? Wikileaks has as much credibility as RT when it comes to objective or reasonable assessments of anything about the West

lolwut? Wikileaks acts as C.O. when talk about Clinton involvement in arm trade with Middle Eastern terrorists.

 

Another similar thing about Murikan Queen.

 

Firstly she

Hillary Clinton Calls For Greater Military Assistance And Financial Aid For Ukraine

But now her beloved  democratic Ukrainian Army suddenly become a nazi warcriminals who reap/torture/kill East-Ukrainian babies (as Evil Russians reported long ago, but who can believe to such evil non-human creatures).

Why? The left are aching to repeal the Second Amendment, then their power will be absolute. Nor will there be any limits on presidential power, it'll be a competition between the oligarchs and mob rule from then on. Not to mention Hilzilla is likely to be able to appoint more than one Justice.

And we will have the opportunity to neuter a Clinton administration in 2018 and dispose of it in 2020.

Considering gun control laws have become more lax and guns even more prevalent in the US, I've never understood this whole "2nd Amendment is under attack!" narrative.

 

Is that your campaign's official position?
